The application period for the Alabama Power Foundation’s 2018 Elevate grant program is now open. Nonprofits across the state are encouraged to apply.

Elevate grants empower nonprofits by funding community-centered projects, educational workshops and networking opportunities.

Since the program’s launch in 2014, 41 nonprofits across the state have received Elevate grants to strengthen their organizations.

This year the foundation will award four grants of $17,500 each. In addition to grant dollars, recipients will participate in a workshop later this year to help them grow and find ways to expand their positive impact.

Online applications will be accepted through Aug. 24 and grant recipients will be announced in September. The Alabama Power Foundation will host grantees at the Elevate grant workshop in November.
